Still trying to figure out how to bring in the New Year with a bang? Grand Park's NYE Celebration has you covered, and then some. Squeeze a little culture into the final hours of 2013 with 3-D animated projections and art installations. Watch live performances from dublab's finest: DJ Seano & Daedelus, Fool's Gold, Myron & E, Buyepongo and the Versa-Style Dance Company, all hosted by Azul 213* Amaral and KIIS FM's Sisanie. Chow down at delicious food trucks, and grab a cocktail (or Champagne) at the cash bar located on Grand Park's performance lawn. Get (fake) tatted up by L.A. Artists on the Move, and show off your ink in a live photo booth while your snapshot is shown 100 feet above Grand Park. Have someone special on the East Coast? Celebrate together with a live feed of the Times Square ball drop at 9 p.m. Or simply wait for L.A.'s own countdown, projected on 22 stories of City Hall. Best part of all? It's free — as is transportation if you take the Metro bus or rail lines, from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m.! Grand Park, 200 N. Grand Ave., dwntwn.; Tues., Dec. 31, 6 p.m.; free.

Tue., Dec. 31, 6 p.m., 2013
